    Answer:

    deepika’s age = x

    vikas’ age = x+3

    Six years ago,

    deepika age = x-6

    Vikas’ age = (x+3)-6 = 4(x-6)

    vikas age = (x+3)-6 = 4(x-6)

    = x+3-6 = 4x-6

    = x-4x = -6-3+6

    -3x = -3

    x=1

    = Deepika = 1

    vikas = 4

    Deepika=x
    Vikas=x+3
    Six years ago
    Deepika=x-6
    Vikas=4(x+3-6)
    Then,
    x-6=4(x-3)
    x-6=4x-12
    x-4x=-12-6
    -3x=-18
    x=6

    So,
    Deepika=6 years old
    Vikas= 9 years old
